52 Ancestors: #13 Hilma Albertina Engdahl Kellison (1891-1984)

Hilma was born in Sweden in October 1891.  She and her sister Olga immigrated about 1904. 

Hilma married Walter Bailey Kellison in 1916 in Montana.  By 1920 they had moved to Washoe County, Nevada.  She and Walter had five children that I know of: Anna, Richard, Milton Bailey, Donald and Marlene.  Olga married Thurman Allen Poe about 1919.

While in Sparks, the Kellison family and the Poe family were mentioned in the local papers on a regular basis, for parties for the children as well as other activities. 

I am looking for information about the Poe family as well as the Engdahl family.  If you are willing to collaborate with this research, please contact me.
